Contractor discounted Hanford leak evidence for a year
[link to www.king5.com]

[snip]

The press release said the leak was found “during a regularly scheduled” inspection of AY-102 in August.

But the KING 5 Investigators found that the first evidence that AY-102 was leaking came nearly a year earlier, in October 2011.

Why it took DOE and the private company hired to oversee the tank a full year to conduct a thorough investigation into signs of a leak of highly radioactive waste raises a larger question about the clean-up effort at Hanford – a 586 square mile patch of Central Washington that’s the most contaminated place in the Western Hemisphere.

That question: How effective is the oversight of the private contractors doing much of the complicated work at Hanford?

[....]
“It looked like tank waste to me,” said another source who asked to remain anonymous. “All the managers did not want that tank to have a leak.”

“This is evidence that the company was bending over backward to not find the bad news,” said Tom Carpenter, executive director of the Hanford Challenge, a watchdog group based in Seattle. “This is the mindset at the Hanford site -- of denial.”

Japan to strike nuclear deals with Turkey, UAE

Japan is set to conclude agreements with Turkey and the United Arab Emirates to transfer its nuclear power technology.

Japan is set to sign nuclear cooperation pacts with the 2 Middle East countries during Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's visit to the region between late April and early May.

The nuclear cooperation deals will be the first to be concluded since the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in March, 2011.

A consortium of Japanese and French firms are expected to jointly receive an order to construct a nuclear power plant in Turkey.

Japan and the United Arab Emirates also reached a deal after coordinating terms on technological cooperation.

Radioactive materials from N.Korea's test detected

An international monitoring agency says radioactive materials from a North Korean nuclear test in February leaked into the atmosphere.

The Vienna-based Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization announced on Tuesday that an observatory for atmospheric radioactive materials in Gunma Prefecture, central Japan, detected radioactive xenon in the air on April 8th and 9th. The agency said the xenon likely came from North Korea's 3rd nuclear test on February 12.

TEPCO gears up to restart reactors by self-developing equipment

Tokyo Electric Power Co. will equip its idled nuclear reactors with filtered venting systems developed on its own as part of its efforts to swiftly seek their restart, company sources said Thursday.

Japanese utilities are trying to install the system because it will become one of the new safety requirements for reactors from July as a measure to deal with severe accidents, but it is rare to self-develop the system. Other utilities have outsourced the equipment to companies such as heavy electric machinery makers.

S. Korea, US extend nuclear pact

South Korea and the United States have agreed on a two-year extension to a civilian nuclear pact that Seoul wants amended to allow it to produce its own nuclear fuel, officials said Wednesday.

The current pact, signed in 1974, had been due to expire next year. The extension was agreed to allow more negotiations on the heated topic of allowing the South to reprocess spent fuel rods.

NRC expanding social outreach efforts with new live chat next week

In 2009, President Obama issued a memorandum to executive agencies which outlined guidance for the use of social media to increase outreach efforts.  In January 2011, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission launched its first official blog.  Over the course of the last few years, the NRC has been working to expand their social media impact.

This week the agency announced that they will be working to expand its social media outreach by launching a new live chat discussion platform on April 30th, which is geared to increase the NRC’s presence on the internet.  The chat is similar to the existing NRC blog, but will feature moderated discussion with NRC experts responding to approved questions.  Questions can be submitted early by sending them to opa.resource@nrc.gov.

There is a reason, as shown above in the video, why the Obama administration DRASTICALLY once again has increased radiation limits on April 14th 2013

"Obama Approves Raising Permissible Levels of Nuclear Radiation in Drinking Water.
Civilian Cancer Deaths Expected to Skyrocket"


"In soil, the PAGs allow long-term public exposure to radiation in amounts as high as 2,000 millirems.
This would, in effect, increase a longstanding 1 in 10,000 person cancer rate to a rate of 1 in 23 persons exposed over a 30-year period."

HMS Torbay nuclear submarine evacuated
A nuclear submarine in Devonport dockyard had to be evacuated after a fire broke out while maintenance work was being carried out.

About 55 people had to leave when the fire broke out as welding was being done on the outside of the Trafalgar class submarine, said the Royal Navy.

The "small fire" among protective blankets was put out within five minutes by a fire crew, it said.

The Royal Navy said no-one was injured and an investigation would take place.

It added the submarine had not been damaged.

Early warning system
A Royal Navy spokesman said: "Before the fire service arrived, the fire was put out by a member of the Royal Navy crew in response to an alert by the duty watch.

"In accordance with normal procedure, the submarine was evacuated of crew and contractor workers, numbering about 55.

"They later returned to the submarine after the fire service gave the all-clear having checked the area for further risk of fire.

"The early warning system on board and on-going training of the crew and contractors restricted the fire to a very small event."

He also said the investigation will aim to "learn lessons" to avoid similar incidents.

Japan court rejects demand to evacuate Fukushima children
[link to ajw.asahi.com]

[snip]

The unusual lawsuit was filed on behalf of the children by their parents and anti-nuclear activists in June 2011. The Sendai High Court handed down its ruling on April 24.

The case had drawn international attention because it touched the uncertainties about the effects of continuous low-dose radiation on health, especially that of children, who are far more vulnerable than adults.

The lawsuit argued the city of Koriyama had legal responsibility to evacuate children at elementary schools and junior-high schools, which are part of compulsory education under Japanese law.

The court acknowledged radiation in the city exceeded levels deemed safe prior to the disaster. But it said the government shoulders no responsibility for evacuating the schools as demanded--in effect, telling people to leave on their own if they were worried.

Chernobyl marks 27 years since nuclear accident

A memorial ceremony has been held in Ukraine to mark the 27th anniversary of the world's worst nuclear plant accident at Chernobyl.

On April 26th, 1986, an explosion occurred at the plant's No.4 reactor under experimental operation. Ukraine was part of the now-defunct Soviet Union at the time.

The accident released a massive amount of radioactive materials. About 30 plant workers and firefighters died after suffering acute radiation exposure.

The United Nations estimates that about 6,000 children near the plant have developed thyroid cancer.

In the town of Slavutich, people mourned the victims by leaving candles and flowers at a monument on Friday morning. Slavutich is 50 kilometers from the Chernobyl plant and many of the maintenance workers live in the town.

They prayed that the accident will never be repeated.

The damaged reactor was covered with a protective structure made of concrete and metal right after the disaster.

But the so-called stone coffin has deteriorated. The Ukrainian government is building a new shelter with a budget of more than one billion dollars that includes financial support from Japan, the United States and Europe.

Steps to halt increase of radioactive water at Fukushima plant studied

A government-appointed panel of experts on Friday started studying ways to prevent more radioactive water from accumulating at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, including a plan to embed walls around the damaged reactor buildings to stop groundwater from entering.

About 400 tons of groundwater seep into the plant every day, flowing into the lengthy and complicated water circulation loop that keeps the plant's damaged reactors cool. In the process, the groundwater becomes contaminated.
